3 Useful Pointers for Purchasing Stacked Washer Dryers

Stackable washer/dryer sets are a great choice and they are a perfect alternative to getting two side by side mammoths that take up the entire laundry room. You should never just go out and buy one of these sets until you’ve thoroughly checked out the various models available, however. If you hope to find the best stackable washer/dryer set, use the techniques listed below.

There are a number of different types of machines that go by the name stacked washer dryers. While they are all combination units, they have some differences. Essentially, stacked washer dryers are separate units which are placed on top of each other. While stackables are in fact two machines that have been connected, stacked units are essentially two different and compact machines. For this reason, they cost a bit more. The advantage is that since they are distinct machines, you can choose each for its own qualities. For example, if you prefer the features of one company’s washer, but another company’s dryer, you could combine them rather than having to purchase them both together. When you purchase separate stacked washer dryers, you can analyze each machine and pick the best ones for you.


You should take second-hand stacked washer dryers into consideration, if you don’t have too much money to spend. You will be able to find these used units for sale on Craigslist as well as in the classifieds section of your local paper.

Auction sites, such as EBay, can also be a good place to find them for sale. However, there are some drawbacks to this approach. For one thing, it’s a heavy appliance and you’ll have to pay a lot for shipping if the seller isn’t local. You also won’t receive any sort of warranty, which could lead to problems if the unit breaks down. Therefore, unless you are purchasing your unit from someone you know well and trust, or you are buying it really cheap, you might want to wait until you can save up for a new unit.

If you’re shopping for stacked washer dryers, one of the first things you have to decide is what kind of power source you want. Since you are buying two different units you can choose but you will find that washing machines tend to run on electricity while dryers can either be electric or powered by gas. You will find that various models and brands provide various options in this area. If you want to keep your power bills down and you already have gas in your home, you could go for a gas dryer. However, if you don’t, then look for an electric unit. The options available in your home will determine the type of power source you opt for.

Generally speaking, there are plenty of things you need to think on if you are considering purchasing a stacked washer dryer. You want to ensure you are getting a reliable, quality appliance that will serve you for many years to come when investing in a major unit like a washing machine. The unit should also do its job properly, namely to dry and wash your clothes well. We have looked at a few important points you need to remember when researching stacked washer dryers, but the key is to choose a design that is perfect for your home.

Oceania Mediterranean Cruise 2008 2264 N
Washers & Dryers

There are four washers and dryers aboard ship, which were highly sought after by the passengers and were in use most of the day. This photo was taken after the official closing time.

Why a laundry room photo? Many of the other passengers commented that if they had known that detergent was provided, or that there were so few washers, they would have planned differently. Sherri thought this photo would be a good public service!

Question by JEM: What is the best detergent to use with high efficiency washers?
I’m trying/starting to go the “green” route and heard that cold water is the best way to wash clothes but what detergent should I use. Tide doesn’t have Tide Cold Water for HE washers. Is there another brand I can try?
Where can I find these detergents. Are they at local grocery stores or at Target, Wal-Mart, etc…..?

Best answer:

Answer by R R
Good for you! Cold water does save on the energy used to wash, as does HE. You can also continue your green quest by using earth friendly detergents made for HE. We use Seventh Generation and also Earth Friendly ECOS detergents. They do a great job in cold water, HE, pleasant mild scent, and good for the water supply. Hope you find something you like.
